SWAT team surrounds home of ex-ND coach
A SWAT team remains dispatched at a Granger, Ind., home belonging to former Notre Dame defensive coordinator Corwin Brown.
A St. Joseph's County police officer contacted by the Sun-Times said police reponded to a domestic violance call at 11:55 a.m. He said no other details were available.
A WSBT reporter said he heard shots fired inside the house after arriving on the scene. A neighbor told the station that a woman and several children made it out of the house.
A St. Joseph County police officer told the South Bend Tribune that the Indiana Michigan Power Co. has shut off power to the house. Police also said they have talked to the occupant, who they believe to be Brown, for two hours and are trying to get him back on the phone.
Police confirmed only one person remains in the house. According to the Tribune, police have said over the bullhorn: "Please let us know that you are OK," and "Nobody here wants to hurt you."
Brown was the defensive coordinator under Charlie Weis. He was a position coach for the New England Patriots in 2009 but has not been employed by the team since February.
Stay tuned for details as they develop.
